Extreme poverty remains a huge challenge at international level and one that traditional education is struggling to solve. Another pressing challenge in the context of global education is solving the youth unemployment crisis, with 75 million people aged 16 to 24 currently unemployed. Therefore, it is more important than ever that they leave school not just with good grades, but armed with skills, knowledge, attitudes and values that will help them succeed. This unemployment crisis requires a change and transformation to give these youth an empowering environment for employability by bridging together educational sector and labor market. Strengthening cross-sectorial networking that create new opportunities for work based learning mobility. Consequently with belief that education is the key to tackling youth unemployment and poverty worldwide, in December 2009, International Transformation Foundation (ITF) was established by amalgated youth across East African countries and dully registered in Kenya on August 25th as an international, youth led, non-profit organization that provides youth leadership and entrepreneurship programs to harness creativity in youth an provide a system that provides jobs offering security, opportunities to grow and contribute to the development of communities.See more
